Client feedback: My constant anxiety and disordered mood were making my day to day unbearable, I felt miserable yet stuck.
I offer a safe and collaborative space to explore with you the feelings, thoughts and behaviours that you experience with your issue. Together we will develop an understanding of how these affect you, and what keeps them going. We will work to develop and practice a 'toolkit' of techniques that you can continue to use, to encourage more healthy ways of thinking and responding, to gain better control and emotional balance to reach your therapy goal. I can work with you on issues such as general anxiety, feeling 'stuck', depression, low confidence and self esteem, and social anxiety.

Hi! You may be here because of anxiety, low mood, issues with food, relationship breakdown, family difficulties or trauma.
Counselling can help us get through tremendously difficult times in our lives but also create longer term change by deepening our self - awareness, bring insight into certain behaviours and building our resilience. I will listen closely to your story without judgment and we will decide together if/how we might work together. I am an Integrative Counsellor so make use of a range of models and theories. I use some CBT tools, Transactional Analysis and I find thinking about our systems and the people/ society around us to be very useful. Depending on you I may suggest some creative tools,

I am a creative psychotherapist who works frequently with adults, teens, and pre-teens, who feel overwhelmed by symptoms relating to anxiety, depression, and experiences of trauma; who wish to understand themselves better in order to move forwards. My specialism is offering a therapy experience which involves both conversation, and creative tools/techniques, to help people get to the heart of their issues. Have you ever felt like how you feel is beyond words? Or that you don't want to speak directly about what is troubling you? If so, rest assured that there are lots of other ways to engage in therapy, and that is my speciality.

I work with the following issues on a daily basis: Anxiety and panic attacks.
Sometimes difficulties can have a major impact on our well-being, relationships or work. Maybe friends and family can offer some support but we may also choose to see a qualified and experienced practitioner, who can provide a safe space in which to work with whatever is going on for us. I have a wide range of experience, including working in the NHS, at university as Associate Lecturer (14 years) and in a GP practice as a Lead Therapist and Supervisor, delivering Relational Integrative Therapy. I draw on Psychodynamic and Person-Centred approaches, relational CBT and CFT (Compassion-Focussed Therapy).

We all have emotions and sometimes they don't match up to the way we want to be feeling. I believe that is as good a reason as any to invest the time to learn skills to help improve the way you feel. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, stress, lacking confidence or simply not feeling yourself, my role is to help you learn how to feel better.

I have an interest in Neurodivergence and Anxiety disorders, and find that these two things often go hand-in-hand.
*I currently don't have any evening availability* My name is Charlotte, I can offer you a warm and supportive space to tackle those issues that you feel unable to explore anywhere else. If you find that unhelpful patterns are negatively affecting your life, I can help you by recognising them, and replace negative coping strategies with positive ones. We can nurture your innate resourcefulness and resilience - work towards becoming the person you want to be and finding your own solutions. We can also use the sessions to pause and take time out of your week to just Be, explore who you are and foster a stronger sense of Self.

My experience especially lies within trauma, grief & loss, low self-esteem/self-confidence, anxiety, work related stress and other life challenges and transitions.
I am passionately committed to finding out what feels safe for each client, in order to offer a safe, therapeutic space, with empathy, warmth and unconditional positive regard. I work in a holistic way, bringing awareness to mind, body, emotions & soul (aka "true self", “authentic self”). I deeply believe that authentic, human relationships are a powerful tool towards positive change. I believe in the uniqueness of each human being and appreciate that "one size doesn't fit all". This is why my continuous commitment to training over the years has enriched my skills & knowledge and allows me to adjust my approach to client needs.

I have experience with many mental health illnesses and trauma-related issues, including: alcohol and drug abuse, domestic abuse, sexual abuse and violence, diagnoses, disordered eating, bereavement, depression, anxiety, self-harming, suicidality, and childhood trauma.
Sometimes life can begin to feel challenging and painful, impacting your inner and outer world. This could be instigated by past traumas, current distressing circumstances or a long-standing mental health condition. Maybe you cannot identify what feels out of place but know that you would like support to explore these emotions and work towards a place of healing. The prospect of entering into therapy can feel like an overwhelming decision, especially in choosing what will best suit your needs. I believe the therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance, enabling trust and respect, ultimately resulting in lasting change.
